BIG CHANGES AT ARMSTRONG TEXTILES

NEW PRODUCTS

Lesley Armstrong is excited about upcoming changes in Armstrong Textiles, now that the dust has settled after our move to the South Shore of Nova Scotia. Amstrong Textiles will be in Booth 9017 in the Connector leading to Designer/Maker Hall at the NYNOW Show, August 20-23, 2016.  Stay tuned for the launch, also in August, of our 2016/17 Season products .

 

RE-COMMENCEMENT OF WORKSHOPS

Also, the Summer of 2017 will see LaHave Textile Workshops start up again! From 2002-2004 LaHave Weaving Workshops were held in the wonderful and charming LaHave Bakery--well worth a visit! Now that we have permanently moved to the LaHave River area, Lesley is thrilled to be planning workshops again, this time in a different location. Lesley will offer introductory/refresher and more advanced levels of weaving workshops, as well as specific project workshops (such as "Weave a Rag Rug" and "Weave Your Own Table Linens"). From time to time, visiting teachers will be conducting additional workshops in other textile areas. Please watch here for the announcement of the new location and the 2017 LaHave Textile Workshop schedule.
